Huh.... so I installed the new AMD drivers and the game plays at a solid 5fps now, no settings in game changed... FFS.

EDIT: Fun little addition, flash video causes the driver to crash and the screen to lockup with a graphical glitch that requires a restart to recover from...
Back to beta8 for me.

Cool!

But this kind of improvement is for newer cards right? I'm still gonna give it a go

Does anyone know why I seem to be unable to force any AA settings using Inspector? I have tried both adding the Far Cry 3 DX11 executable to the drivers built in profile as well as creating a new profile with just the Dx11 executable, and none of the settings seem to work in game. I have also tried disabling edge AA and MSAA within the game, and with the Inspector set to override the in game settings it is clear that there is no AA being applied to the scene, and all transparent objects have horrible aliasing. I have also tried using the Far Cry 2 DX1x compatibility flag with no luck. I am running the 310.64 drivers with Inspector 1.9.6.7. Running the in game AA works fine on my GTX 670, but frame rates seem to take a big hit.

Any help would be greatly appreciated - I would love to be able to get 2X MSAA within Inspector with 4X SSOG transparency AA working with the game.

Here is Xbox 360 configuration If any want to test or got a rly bad computer and just want to play the game Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)






















Did a test with my 690 got 40-50% usage of both gpu on Idle settings on gpu! thats 324 mhz core and memory, with steady 30 fps looks like crap on pc but good for people with rly low end gpu

Im running a 2500k at stock clocks with a Gigabyte GTX 670 4GB also at stock clocks. using 310.64 beta driver.

I get about 30 to 60 fps (maxed at 1440p with 2x AA) depending on where i am and what im doing, that low 30 is due to some cpu bottlenecking i appear to be getting occasionally.

damn this game is CPU heavy... i think ill invest in a NH-D14 and try to clock my 2500k to ~4.5GHz.

id complain about the performance but the game is GORGEOUS.

Sorry I forgot to put in the frame counter on but heres some pretty screens:
Maxed out, @1440p, 2x AA

Usage graphs. Only that last section of Afterburner usage to the right, which is when I spent a minute or two walking around the town, looking straight ahead at everything and everyone the whole time. Framerate never goes below 100fps, around 110-115fps most of the time. If I bumped my 3930k a little more I'd have a smooth 120fps in the town, because as you can see that one core is hitting a full load every now and then. But I'm not going to put anymore voltage through it just to go up ~5fps, after 4.6Ghz it starts needing more voltage for diminishing returns in speed.
So, there must be something wrong with your system, or it's not liking one of the settings you have enabled.
Are you using the default nVidia SLI profile or the other one?
